The mission of the Lanciano International Guitar Seminar to promote high-level solo and ensemble/chamber music training for guitarists. Internationally renowned professionals will teach master classes for soloists and ensembles during the six days of the Seminar. A final concert featuring selected participants in solo and ensemble performances will conclude the event.The benefits of successful chamber music experiences are enormous, especially for instrumentalists who devote so much of their time and efforts to solo pursuits. Moreover, chamber music skills are necessary to be competitive in the music job market. A full-immersion guitar education week gives the opportunity to share new ideas, contacts and experiences. Also, it enhances the development of new collaborations. Another important goal of the Lanciano International Guitar Seminar is to promote international cultural exchanges between Italian and international guitarists and institutions. To boost the international exchange stature of this new endeavor, international students will receive a discount on the tuition fee. Moreover, two top participants will receive full scholarships ($575 value each) to the 2018 New York Guitar Seminar at Mannes College the New School for Music, New York City. And two or more other top participants will receive full scholarships to one of the master classes organized by the Estate Musicale Frentana in 2018.
